Verona's go-to place for a nice outdoor café

Piazza delle Erbe is a square in the city of Verona that used to act as the town’s forum during the Roman Empire and now is the city’s go-to place with shops, outdoor cafés and restaurants.


On the northern side stands Torre dei Lamberti, one of Verona’s icons as well as the Casa dei Giuici and the Mazzanti Houses. The southern side is occupied by the Casa dei Mercanti. To the west is Palazzo Maffei and to the northwest is the Roman Capitol Hill. In the middle stands a fountain with the Madonna Verona statue decorating it.
